1985 was the year Wolfgang B. Thoerner machined his first male RCA type plug from a single piece of metal. Though rough, that connector was a predecessor of what was to become the current WBT-0101. The connector featured a locking mechanism unique enough to be granted an international patent.
WBT continues to produce connectors specifically for the high-end audio industry. The product line has expanded from that first RCA type plug to include male and female RCA type connectors, binding posts, banana plugs and spade lugs with functionally unique features that truly elevate them to the top. WBT products are very popular with audio cable and equipment manufacturers worldwide and can be found as standard equipment on many well respected brands. Additionally, WBT currently holds more than 20 patents pertaining to audio connectors.
